SOME TRAINING IMPLICATIONS OF LARGE SHELTERS.
BEND, EMIL
BASED LARGELY ON AIR RESEARCH ON SHELTER MANAGEMENT SIMULATION, AN ANALYSIS WAS MADE OF THE IMPACT OF THE LARGE, COMPLEX SHELTER ON SHELTER MANAGEMENT TRAINING NEEDS. THE LARGE SHELTER REQUIRES THE TYPE OF LEADERSHIP THAT ONLY THOSE WHO ALREADY HAVE SUPERVISORY SKILLS CAN SUPPLY. SUCH PEOPLE ARE NEITHER ATTRACTED NOR HELPED BY THE USUAL SHELTER MANAGEMENT TRAINING COURSE. THE OBJECT OF THIS COURSE SHOULD BE TO REVEAL THE COMPLEXITY OF THE LARGE SHELTER AND ITS PROBLEMS AND TO IDENTIFY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN PEACETIME AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT TRAINING FOR SHELTER MANAGERS INCLUDE A SESSION IN WHICH TRAINEES DEVELOP A PLAN FOR A LARGE, COMPLEX PUBLIC SHELTER, AND A SIMULATION GAME PLAYED DURING THE OCCUPANCY EXERCISE IN WHICH THE STUDENTS ASSUME THE ROLE OF AN EXECUTIVE CADRE. THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES CHARTS ON ORGANIZATION, INFORMATION EXCHANGE, AND TYPICAL PROBLEM AREAS IN THE SIMULATION EXERCISE. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE, AS AD-645-286, FROM THE CLEARINGHOUSE FOR FEDERAL SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL INFORMATION, SPRINGFIELD, VIRGINIA 22151. MICROFICHE $.65. HARD COPY $3.00. 43 PAGES.
